|Explore||We all understand the process of photosynthesis and how detrimental it is for plants to have a substantial income of light. It has been taught to us since elementary school that plants need sun, or a certain lightsource to thrive. That is exactly the reason we came upon the question for our...|
|Research Question||In the most general possible way, we were taught that plants were not eligible to grow in the dark. Well, our group decided to see the results of plants germinating in the dark. Through background research many articles were stating plants would have to be fully grown with some sense of sunlight....|
|Predictions||It's predicted that plants with more sunlight will grow taller and faster than those with less or without. It's also predicted by the group that dicots will grow more and faster than monocots due to the facts that Dicots run off of two cotyledons, and monocots off of endosperm. Quantitatively,...|
|Experimental Design||36 one gallon ziplock bags 6 pieces of standard 8’ 5’ cut graph paper 60 pearl millet seeds 60 rye seeds 60 soybean seeds Non ionized water Ruler A marker to label bags. LED red and blue spectrum Grow-light Three new cardboard boxes from Costco Cloth/t-shirt String Light Timer 36...|
|Conclusion||During the whole 14 days it seems as if the dark ones have grown better progress ethan the light and mid plantings. Through evidence the dark has germinated at 90% through the series of plants. The mid, only 85% of seeds has germinated. The light to summarize this germination occurrence only 50%...|
|About this Project|
Thank you so much for your time committing to this Project, You did a wonderful job helping and contributing to this project! Thanks again for your wonderful work.
Thank you so much for helping us out with our team project, your comments were a lot of help to us!
We did, haha! I saw it and then saw the plants and was interested in it so I looked it up. It's so neat to see famous botanists being featured in things :)
Thanks for sharing the dry weight data. Were you able to draw any conclusions? Did you see any differences between the environmental conditions?
I wasn't able to view the google document. I wonder if you can post in on our project page.
The uploaded PDF file are all the graphs of the total plants. The data is based on the averages of the hypocotyl and radicle.
Hello Team Starchild! This is Dr. Hay. I was looking at your data in the PDF file, trying to visualize it in the form of a graph (see the post below). What are your thoughts? It has been nice working with you. I am very impressed with your project info page! Great work PlantingScientists!
